Early voting has begun in Louisiana for the November 8th election.
Early voting is open to all registered voters within their parish. There are no special qualifications to be eligible for early voting. If you will be out of town for the election, you are eligible. Are you scheduled to work on election day? No worries, you are eligible. If you are gonna be in town and not busy at all and have no reason that you can’t make to the polls on November 8, you are still eligible for early voting.
In Lafayette Parish, early voting is October 25 – November 1 (except Sunday). Voting opens at 8:30am – 6:00pm. All early voting takes place at the Lafayette Parish Government Building, located at 1010 Lafayette St. Office 313. Parking is available in the S. Buchanan St Parking Garage.

There may be more on your ballot than you are expecting to see.

In addition to the statewide initiatives, you may have Judges, mileages or other local officials on your ballot.
